The cover and the blurb made a killer combo that ultimately didn’t deliver. Don’t have much to say although I loved the Fae theme, it was unique and intriguing but till I got to that point I was pretty much over with the tons of cliches the plot kept throwing my way.
Kinda felt like a mash-up of popular books (mostly Twilight and the Vampire Diaries from the start) and I was rooting for the bad brother which is not a bad thing but you can’t root for the other couple, it made Callum (which he totally was by the way) totally annoying.
As was Noa.
Have read this story a million times before. The spark – actual spark like lightening and stuff – the insta love and the I’m not good enough for you bullshit from the very start was eye-roll-worthy. Noa is the timid girl who will of course let people step all over her but when it comes to love she’ll fight to the death.
Really liked Judah, the “bad” brother and I might read the next book just for him and even better if he’s the winner in the love triangle. I did love the world building, it was genius! But it was too chaotic at times to enjoy it, more world less people would have been nice.
And insta love.
Did I mention insta love?
